General Russell Morrison is the hidden tertiary antagonist of the 2010 film The A-Team. He is based on Colonel Samuel Morrison from the original TV series (who was not a villain).

He is portrayed by Gerald McRaney.


General Russell Morrison is the A-Team's commanding officer and a close friend of the leader of the team, Hannibal Smith. When the CIA agent Lynch assigned to the team the covert mission to recover U.S. Treasury plates stole by Iraqi insurgents, Morrison reluctantly authorizes it. After the team succeeds, they are betrayed by Brock Pike, the leader of the private security team Black Forest, who kills Morrison. Due to his death, no one could confirm that the A-Team were authorized to act, therefore the members were sentenced to ten years in prison.

However, it is later revealed that Morrison has faked his death and works with Lynch and Pike to steal the plates. After the A-Team members escaped from prison, they find Pike and manage to steal the plates, and Hannibal kidnaps Morrison. When Lynch learns that the team has Morrison, he orders an airstrike to kill all of them. The team manages to escape, but Morrison is killed.
